Framed photo of the baby in a dad tattoo onesie
No dad can resist a baby wearing his love for dad on his chest, and this onesie does the trick adorably. Better yet, snap a pic before Father’s Day and present it in a great frame. ($15, 13 Days on Etsy)

How to Traumatize Your Children
Not that any of us need actual help in this department, but it’s a fabulous gift for a new dad or expectant dad with a good sense of humor. Hopefully that’s all of them. ($10.97 at The Onion Store)


Messenger style diaper bag for dad | Cool Mom Picks

Messenger style diaper bag
A co-parent of the male persuasion needs his own diaper bag, and ideally, not one with flowers or gingham. Love this messenger-style bag which is about as manly as it gets without sporting diesel stains. The front flap is interchangeable though, should you be in a non-Merle mood. ($79, Dad Gear)

New dad key chain for Father's Day | Cool Mom Picks

New dad key chain
This handstamped aluminum key chain is a great–and affordable–way to commemorate a first Father’s Day. Particularly nice is that the artist takes orders right up until June 9. ($12, Her Silver Lining)

Canon Vixia HF R42 videocamera | Cool Mom Picks

Canon Vixia HF R42 Wi-Fi Video Camera
With the ability to record HD and MP4 video and built in WiFi for sharing and uploading, this top-of-the-line video camera is remarkable. And exactly what any new dad would love for documenting every little moment of that perfect baby’s life. You can even livestream video, and the Baby Mode feature lets you stamp photos with age, height and weight. ($499, Canon)

I Like You and Naps poster | Cool Mom Picks

Father’s Day Wall Art
Grab this “I like you and naps” art from one of our favorite little Etsy shops, and make sure to sign it from the baby. Then again, it could come from any of us moms, too.  ($15 unframed, Sad Shop)


MLB baseball Moby baby wrap | Cool Mom Picks

MLB Moby Wrap
We never thought it would happen, but baby wearing and sports fanaticism have come together. The popular Moby baby carrier is offering 20 teams to choose from right now (sorry, Rockies fans) and they’re perfect for babies up to 34 lbs. Whether you bring the baby to the game is up to you. ($62.95 from Moby Wrap)
